A virtual holiday lighting festival is being held in Ridgefield this year, in lieu of the annual downtown countdown on Friday, November 27th. Although there will be no in-person activities, First Selectman Rudy Marconi says several groups are coming together for the time-honored lighting tradition. Ira Joe Fisher will serve as Master of Ceremonies. ACT, the Ridgefield High School Choir, the Ridgefield High School Orchestra, the Prospector, the Theatre Barn, the Ridgefield Chorale, and other will have a role in the virtual presentation, hosted by Downtown Ridgefield, The Ridgefield Chamber and the Town. The event can be viewed on Facebook or Vimeo. Marconi says a special email address that goes straight into Santa’s mailbox has been set up for anyone wishing to send a letter. That email is Santa@RidgefieldCT.org.
